Primary Schools Laurenskwartier

Because of the construction of the Markthal, both the Willibrordschool and the Jan Prins schools needed to find new accommodation. They chose the robust building at Nieuwstraat 15, which formerly housed Zadkine College. It was then carefully renovated and a new floor was added. The most striking feature is the rooftop playground. The deep building allows for plenty of daylight because of the atrium that connects all spaces. Besides the two primary schools, the building accommodates two kindergartens, two gyms and an out-of-school childcare facility.
